Ranger - Phantom Soldier

The debut album is chock full of thrashy ragers.Very cool lead guitar licks in amongst the big riffs that closes this song.Not even a side A closer..so good!

Minenwerfer - Withered Tombs

I've been purposefully minding my time between playing this lp as it always throws up something not contemplated before.
Case in point this one.It's a thrasher and a damn good one too.

Five Leaves Left is one of my all-time favourite non-metal albums.

Weedeater - Weed Monkey

One of the full-on more energetic songs that remind you it's not all about the slow ancient valve amp warm up.
This band can get you moving when they want to.

Messiah - Extreme Cold Weather

Nothing says pure, true metal like an album cover where your band's logo is sloppily pasted on top of a stock photo of a polar bear in the Arctic.

One of my top five favorite albums of all time.

I remember back in '91 having the choice of buying a BTR tshirt or a Schizophrenia tshirt at one of the cooler (independent) record stores in town. I really wanted the BTR shirt coz I loved the artwork (and the album of course! 10/10!) but it was a little too small and I was a growing lad, so I settled for the Schizophrenia shirt which I still have...faded and full of holes, but I can't bring myself to turf it.

Sonata Arctica - Pariah's Child, The Ninth Hour, Talviyo

The Ninth Hour has almost nothing wrong with it. Great fluid, emotional epic. Talviyo - I mean something that's a bit funny about this band to me is that Tony seems to get bored easily with more structured stuff and just sorta does whatever after certain intervals; it's entertaining.

Twilightning - Jester Realm

The singing and the strong, acrobatic guitars make the poppiness of this into something utterly tremendous, unlike many later imitators.

Sodom - Delight in Slaying

Among the big 3 of Teutonic thrash, Sodom remained the most consistent in playing thrash in the '90s. Granted their style of thrash was infused with punk elements, it made for some heavy and intense moments that maintained the Sodom name as a reliable source for metal throughout that decade.


I wonder if the punk elements are a good part of why their stuff seems to be the best and most consistent of the "Big 3".

Primitive Man - Caustic

Those guys don’t fuck around. Nothing but aural negativity here.

Death Angel - Mistress of Pain

Some fast aggressive thrash metal. I'm never sure if I like this one of one of their last three the most.

This is a pretty slick cut of death metal.

Been listening to all 3 Whispered albums lately. Cool stuff on each of 'em. The debut is still a bit in primal form, but I just think the epic closer is one of the best epics EVER created.

Massive soundscapes, especially on two latter platters: This stuff wipes Wintersun's pale arse.

Deep Purple - Live At the California Jam 1974
Blistering set....Blackmore in his prime. (This gig would have been amazing to attend, due to its eclectic line-up: the Eagles; Earth, Wind & Fire; Seals & Crofts, ELP, SABBATH, and Purple.)

Now playing: BLACK BLEEDING - Worship Demo 2003

Here is an ooold release of the belgian/ french band… The style was globally the same than on later releases, between death and black metal with some ferocious moments, perhaps with a bit more of “old brutal death” influences, and you can feel their style was less ”refined”, but good energy and some cool ideas.

Saxon - Age of Steam

This and Cloven Hoof are like the most basic building blocks of this genre imaginable but man do they fuckin sell it with verve and energy.

I always said that in classic metal you can do A LOT with just what has already been laid out but with songcraft and loads of energy and vigor!

Cloven Hoof - Time Assassin

They truly know how to focus on the almighty RIFF and squeeze all of the power they can from them. Astoundingly good.

A lot of the time I focus on more idiosyncratic stuff now, but in both cases you get really good charismatic singing and just no bullshit, cool songs that rock out - so it works.

Good, properly paced and set up songs are going to be just that - good songs. When played with conviction and energy and with great singing to boot you just get a great heavy metal album and there is nothing wrong with that.

They lost me with Talviyo. There were flashes of life here and there, but it was really just too plodding and directionless in my opinion. The Garden was probably the best song on that entire album simply for the fact that Tony seemed to sing with actual emotion.

Tower - In Dreams

These guys are the discovery of the year for me. Fast, fiery, and just a breath of fresh air. And Sarabeth Linden’s vocal delivery is an absolute showstopper.

I don't really think any of the songs on Talviyo are bad. Solid fun. Not as good as their best but they sound comfortable and are not retreading anything.

Jack White - What's the Trick?

Still holding up, love it.

The music is as dark as the character himself.

Evile - Cult

One of the best modern metal bands and songs in my opinion, Evile always nail songwriting.

Amen to that, one of the best albums undoubtedly.

Agents Of Oblivion - S/T

Just an incredible album, nuthin else out there like it. I was gutted when Acid Bath called it quits but these guys filled that void for me, not as heavy but the music and songwriting dynamics were there and Daxxs fantastic vocals and lyrics. One great album was all they gave us tho, shoulda been more dammit, so much potential. Daxx would however reappear with the excellent Deadboy & The Elephantmen album but I think Agents Of Oblivion should've been the breakthrough band/album for Daxx.

Blood Incantation - Awakening from the Dream of Existence to the Multidimensional Nature of Our Reality (Mirror of the Soul)

The sprawling 18-minute conclusion to "Hidden History..." A friend had turned me off from Blood Incantation as he had written them off as 'trendy' and 'metal for hipsters'. Because of him, I didn't give this album a chance. I did enjoy "Starspawn" so I should be able to listen to it and not be influenced by bias against it.

I love this new album.
Probably their best since "The Great Mass", imo.

Some people say stupid shit like that when certain extreme metal bands get a lot of hype, I've noticed. Blood Incantation's great and bands getting hype is a good thing - helps the genre grow and stay alive.

Visceral Evisceration - (I Am) Enamoured of Dead Bodies

Cool loose-sounding doom/death metal. You can tell that these folks jammed a lot. The lyrics, however, are quite SOMETHING.

Obsessed by orgasmic emotions
His whole organs smirched with shit


God damn! :lol:

Xiphea- Witchcraft

Not a bad album by any means, but man it's was less catchier than their previous works, there's no "Cinderella," "Hook," or "Salt and Diamonds."

Dark Forest - Beyond the Veil
Amazing 'folkish' power metal....absolutely tailor made for fans of Falconer. This is NOT flower metal...

highly recommended.
